I am curious as to the Stroud Green earworms. 6 music are asking for your earworm
The term earworm originally comes from a translation of the German word
'Ohrwurm'. It refers to the experience of having a tune or a part of a tune
stuck in your head. Often a person experiencing an earworm has no idea why a
tune has popped into their head and has little control over how long it
I have two the first is My Lovely horse from Father Ted and for some unknown reason The Safety dance by Men Without Hats
GG highD BAG lowDEGG lowDDEGG. Anyone recognise it? 'I wish I knew how'. My singing group sang it yesterday, and now I'm stuck with it. Ohrwurm, indeed. Good word. Good thread.
Tracks of My Tears (Smokey Robinson) at the moment. But I've noticed I frequently get World Painted Blood (Slayer) waking up Shepherd's Hill towards Jackson's Lane.
I've spent most of today with Strangely Attractive by MJ Hibbett & the Validators stuck in my head, which is especially baffling given it's not even one of my ten favourite songs on Dinosaur Planet.
Robbie Robertson's guitar solo on Dylan's performance of Forever Young during the Last Waltz. On repeat in my head for several days. Never gets old.
Today I've had Moonlight Shadow and When You're Gone. But it changes a lot.
Cinderella Rockefella by Esther and Abi Ofarim.
I hate it.
Blue is the Color (football is our game), but i am a Chelsea fan
The intro (Abba) to Madonna's 'Hung Up' which drives me nuts, and the Mending Song sung by the mice on the mouse organ from Bagpuss, which sums up my attitude to life.
Today its Lip up fatty - bad manners
I often get 'Sit Down' by James - I've always hated it, so I wish I didn't! Repetitive singing of 'Old MacDonald' usually makes it go away, though.
A very painful experience for me was when one morning recently I couldn't get that 'Rah Rah Ooh Lala' hook from one of Lady Gaga's superhits out of my head (the one with 'Rah Rah Ooh Lala' in it - is that Pokerface?). At some point I was ready to have my head chopped off, but then I didn't. Maybe it is my subconscious or something telling me that it wants mor Rah Rah Ooh La la in my life. Very sad. I also frequently get Scarred for Life by Slapp Happy, more of an album track from one of their less exciting albums, and the opening of the Third Brandenburg Concerto.
I still haven't forgiven Cyndi Lauper for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
@Marquis, it's from Lady G's 'Bad Romance'.
Jesus Marquis my condolences.
That's reminded me I did have the sodding waka waka world cup song in my head for about 3 weeks it went away after I drank best part of a bottle of gin. I dont drink I was that desperate.
Whenever I hear the mac startup tone, I get "you got the love" by the Source featuring Candi Staton in my head.
Over Christmas, I had "informer" by snow in my head for five days straight.
remember your a womble - by the wombles
the wombles were ahead of their time - they were very environmentally friendly people,picking up rubbish on wimbeldon common in the 1970's... good people...and good singers too...
I have been on a 14 hour womble hunt with someone dressed as a frog in 2002 we didn't catch anything but was a jolly good time.
Thanks for nothing I now have the bloody Womble song in my head.
Today I heard an amusing anecdote concerning a child who misheard 'I am the lord of the dance said he' as 'I am the lord of the dark settee'.At first I laughed.Now I just have it stuck on repeat.
That's exactly the way my little sister used to sing it!
I often have the theme from black beauty.
Star Trekking - The Firm
Thats thanks to miss annie.
Detritus does a cracking version of that. And of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SP5EfwBWgg0
I've recorded with the chap who voiced Scotty in Star Trekkin'. It was made in Walthamstow.
That is impressive!
Today's earworm... the Simon Bates 'Our tune' theme, and it's bloody annoying.
Bad Romance, Lady Gaga
A couple of the tunes from the school Zumba class.
